Comment: One more reason to not watch NFL (Score 2) 107

Could this be the year for Surface on the tablet??

This is so putrid. During every game this year, viewers are going to see a few scripted moments where a bunch of players/coaches will be standing around with their tablets and the TV commentators will discuss how marvelous/innovative the Surface tablets are. But during the rest of the game, watch closely: along the sidelines you will very rarely see anyone using their tablets

At some point during the season, a referee will make a controversial ruling after reviewing a replay using a Surface tablet (again, scripted moment).

But that's okay. I'll be watching not-the-NFL.

Capitalism is still the greatest system in the world

That great Capitalist, Microsoft, spares no expense in its long-running effort to force everyone to use 100% MS products. Part of its effort is paying BestBuy employees to lie about Linux. I think there's an article about it somewhere on /. You might want to look for it.

Oh, and thanks for your comments, Mr Rove.

It's great that BestBuy wants to make money and that one of the ways they can make money is to "partner" with companies, like Microsoft, that will pay them to lie. That's Capitalism for you.

It's also a prominent reason that I, and most of my friends, don't shop at BestBuy. We all know we'll be lied to from BestBuy. It'd be great to go up to a salesperson and feel confident that any questions will receive carefully considered, honest responses. But, what we get are push-products-sold-by-Company-X-because-they're-our-partner responses. So, unlike 1999 when I went to BestBuy once a week, now I go there maybe once every year. I just don't like their B.S.

Well, that and their policy to DEMAND I listen to their spiel about extended warranties, with no regard to whether or not I, the customer, want to hear that crap.

The bogosity meter just pegged.

Working...
